NY BURGER WEEK MAY 1-7, 2013
– 7 Days of delicious Burger events
From gourmet blends to off-menu specialities, to beer pairings, NY Burger Week will pay tribute to the world’s greatest sandwich, the Hamburger. Each restaurateur and Chef will be preparing a unique event that pays tribute to the Burger in their own way.
George Motz is the creator of the Food Film Festival, the “Hamburger America” book, the “Hamburger America” Film, the Burger GPS app and now host of the Travel Channel’s “Burger Land.” George loves Hamburgers and I love eating them with him. His quest to preserve and promote the Burgers that made the USA a Burger destination is never ending and completely honorable. When it came time to planning the 2nd annual NY Burger Week I wanted to work with him and The Food Film Festival crew. It just made sense especially with NY Burger Week happening around the premier of “Burger Land.” They agreed and suggested we have a viewing party for an episode with George as the event host. My reaction: HELL YEAH.

On the night of the event VIP guests arrived to Brooklyn Bowl for this private party along with a couple winners. Guests were handed tickets for complimentary Burgers from Blue Ribbon and a complimentary Lager from Brooklyn Brewery. After a bit of hobnobbing and eating, George took the stage and talked about the show. He then introduced it and we got to watch the Houston episode of “Burger Land” while eating Burgers and drinking Beers. The event was a mini version of a Food Film Festival event where you get to taste what you see on the screen! What a way to watch the show especially with all the giant screens all over Brooklyn Brewery showing it was blasting the audio through their massive sound system. The viewing was followed by a bowling party at the Lanes. All in all, a super cool and fun NY Burger Week event.
Congrats to you George on making Burger dreams come true by getting a super rad Burger Show onto TV. I can’t wait to see myself on the NYC episode (ego check) and thank you for inviting me to be a part of it. Thank you for being a part of NY Burger Week. To Seth Unger, Food Film Festival producer, you are a brother & a freaky, food obsessed, weirdo that knows how to make every scenario fun. I’m glad I know you and even more happy that music somehow lead both of us to the Burgerverse. Thank you for your support. To Brooklyn Bowl, Brooklyn Brewery & Blue Ribbon, cheers to you for letting us throw a great VIP event. To my Food Film Festival family, you are large in and in charge. I love being in you.
